An Armenian, born in UAE, with a Lebanese nationality, living in the Netherlands.

In 2007, I graduated from Notre-Dame University with a BA in graphic design, emphasis on typography and moving image. Then in 2009, I completed Type and Media, and received my MDes in type design from the Academy of Art in the Hague |KABK|.

I have worked in Landor associates, Dubai for almost a year in 2008. I've completed various internships during my studies including JWT, Dubai, and Mohtaraf Beirut Graphics, Beirut. My work was part of some publications including the ISTD monthly newsletter as well as the book Arabesque, Graphic Design from the Arab World and Persia |Die Gestalten Verlag. 2008|.

I currently work as a freelancer on various graphic design projects focusing more on typography and type design.

Below are some samples of my work.
